6130 or 4130 chrome Moly. Flex and stregnth. Not sure if this is used on eBikes but I can't imagine weight would be a major problem.
Speaking personally only and from a commuter and touring standpoint, while I would want a belt, I would not want suspension. I would rather have the lightness, simplicity and durability of a "rigid" frame...in titanium or for a lower budget, steel. Comfort to me can be through larger tires, and a longer wheelbase, especially longer chain stays. In other words, more passive suspension built into the bike.
Steel is Real, but Ti is Fly.6130 or 4130 Chrome Moly. Flex and strength.

Any ideas when?To a soft tail like indicated above, yes.
To a traditional full suspension, not at this time.
It is doable. Honestly I have SO much on my plate. The amount of testing it takes is crazy. Also we haev to custom design some parts - just the mold and testing the mold takes a lot of time and effort.Any ideas when?
Full suspension w/ belt drive (maybe with a step through frame) and your usual build quality and I will buy 2 on the spot and I know a lot of others will as well. I'm begging you!!! Just do it!
Suspended front carrier ? You mean on the frame itself ?Suspended rear & front carrier would be important for me in the future. I guess Germans "commute" with Beer more often and would like it not to be so shook up when they get to their destination!
Titanium is the superior material... the cost and fabrication are the real issues.Good question. I think that the word Titanium has a certain cache but aluminum would be just as effective and possibly lower in cost... If using Titanium lowered the overall weight that would tip the scales in its favor.
Yes & Yes, so the goods you have on the racks get a smooth ride, also do not contribute to wear & tear of the bike as much and they also do not hinder the suspension like racks connected to axles front or rear would.Suspended front carrier ? You mean on the frame itself ?
Suspended Rear carrier - like the RM ?
The suspended rack is the ultimate, like i said, comfortable on the gear on the rack, bike & suspension without having to worry about rebound so much.How about faster rebound, but a larger rear suspension to compensate for the faster rebound ? Its not ideal but you can get 80 - 85% of the way.
